Introduction to Software Engineering 2

Description

This course expands the problem-solving techniques of SENG1110 to large problems, with a study of an object-oriented software analysis and design methodology. Software implementation techniques and standards are introduced with the aim of improving programming skills. Students use fundamental algorithmic techniques and structures such as stacks, queues, trees and heaps as tools for problem solving design and implementation.
